In my humble opinion McLeod is a better keeper followed by Labbe and then Leblanc. Leblanc has a habit of allowing bad goals recently; 2 against Germany last Sept and 1 versus China in Toronto.

Morace must be thinking the same way Pellerud did in 2007.

To be fair to Garefrekes, the ball did seem to take an odd bounce right before she struck it.

In a number of European academies, the focus is on TIPS: technique, intelligence, position play and speed.

Or it is looked down upon as it is in hockey with skilled Europeans with no heart vs the good old Cdn boys.

Those not on twitter are missing a good joke thread about #ChristineSinclair. Suffice it to say Chuck Norris has a poster of her on his wall.

So would a womens fast technical, skillfull team be able to beat a mens team?

well, these types of comments are made with the base case assumption that differences in strength is within normal deviations while men vs women would be an outlier scenario.
Anyway, good to see 662k watched Canada vs Germany on Sunday. Not quite as good as most NHL games on CBC; though on par with games on TSN & RSN. On par with men's World Cup matches last year at the group play stage matches played on weekdays.

Akin to Les Blues theme song. Germany's version "Sister Hit the Goal" by Marta Jandová. Who would have ever thought women's soccer would get to this level of status so fast. FIFA has done an amazing job with the women's game.

I would give more credit to the LOC in Germany than FIFA.
